As I made the Tater Skins, I noticed we had one larger potato. I didn't really want to make a super huge potato skin, so I started thinking about how else I could use it. I still had some potato skin filling left, but not quite enough to fill an entire potato skin. Then I thought back to the egg in an avocado and egg in a basket. Why not add an egg and call it breakfast? I started out baking them like the egg in an avocado, and then I switched to steaming. We both preferred steaming, and it's a bit faster, but you could make more at once if you bake them instead. I just made two, so steaming it was!

What do you like to combine your eggs with when making breakfast?
